The Air Jordan IX was one of the underrated and under-appreciated shining lights of the 2012 Air Jordan Retro cycle; we saw not one, not two, but a whopping three OG colorways return to shelves (the classic ‘Bulls’, a reprisal of the ‘Powder Blue’, and the long-awaited comeback of the Charcoal), and surprisingly, the latter two weren’t instant sell-outs, but rather hit sales racks at some locations. Will that be the repeat case this Holiday 2012 season, when four Air Jordan IX retros are set for return? Here’s a first look at the all-new Black/Photo Blue colorway that is slated for a November 2012 release; these first teaser shots feature a black upper with a white outsole and a Photo Blue Jumpman – a color-profile similar to the ‘Citrus’ release of 2010. What gives these a unique twist is the contrast stitching on the upper, a detail that isn’t quite universally loved. Your thoughts on this upcoming release?

Air Jordan IX
These are nice, not a big fan of 9's but I'd add these. Only problem are all the OG releases hitting November... That's where my pass comes in at... But these are nice, accents, suede leather combo, would swap laces from time to time...
From these pics that I see as of right now not feeling them. Sorry these look like some off sample releases.
If its one thing JB know how to do is F**k up a colorway they need me in the color designing process cus if they had the colors in the right places these potentially coulda been the best 9s next to the cool greys....JB stop messing up colorways with white bottoms
Love da blue stitchin but ill probably pass... but we have 6 months til they drop, might change my mind
space jam 9's call them what they are already I have two pair one going for 600 "Space jam 11's) reply if youre interested
eehhhh...not feeling them n im a big fan of the 9s since i was born in that year rather copp the french blues,olives or cool grey
Clean, but with the black cement iv's, bred xi's, and columbia xi's releasing around that time, I could see myself passing on these...
